Pula, with its fabulous microclimate, is a reality yet to be discovered.
20 km of coast, 7000 hectares of forest, long white beaches of fine sand, small narrow bays between rocky headlands, a sea of glass that reflects and enhances the blue sky. The mountains, the forests, the streams of the Natural Park of Sulcis. A mild winter, never too hot in the summer. Finally, a cultural heritage of absolute value. This is the basic formula for a holiday in Pula, ideal for all ages and for all seasons.
Its vast territory includes diverse natural environments: rocky coasts, crystal clear sea and beaches of great beauty and variety ranging from those of Santa Margherita extended to that of Nora.
In the vicinity of the latter is the lagoon of the same name, which includes a branched system of channels and islands that characterizes the mouth of the river Rio Arrieras, and it is separated from the sea by the peninsula called Fradis minoris, a geological formation known as the Tyrrhenian sandstone bed, rich of fossil inclusions.
The lagoon is full of numerous species of birds including the most representative in coastal birdlife as the rare Audouin’s gull, which the Laguna di Nora is its main nesting site in Italy. The waters of the lagoon are home to valuable fish species and it is alive with the traditional fishing activities that are carried out with the boats and gear used in typical Sardinian lagoons.
Don’t forget the immense natural heritage of the forests of Piscina Manna and Cannoneris. Highly attractive tourist destinations for their beautiful flora and fauna, they are considered the richest forests in the Sulcis area. It is not uncommon to sight the Sardinian deer and other animals in the wild. The presence of some nuraghes and Calamixi sheer, makes it particularly interesting to visit. The forest can be traversed by its main and secondary roads (some paths or mule tracks) thanks to a system of well signposted trails for hiking. The Mediterranean scrub consists of thick woods of pine and oak trees crossed with streams, along which, myrtle and arbutus exhale in the air a warm spicy scent that enchants those who cross the ancient paths towards a journey back in time to discover ancient civilizations in contact with nature.
The first hotel in Pula was inaugurated in 1956. Since then, the town has gradually distinguished itself for its organization and for the hospitality of its inhabitants. Today, tourists can count on first-class hotel facilities and internationally recognized prestige. The hotels are able to offer their guests abundant recreational facilities, but also for those who choose a different accommodation will have a wide range of opportunities.
